Kemet Multi-layer Ceramic Capacitors C410 Series
Kemet's C410 series of ceramic capacitors are available in a variety of sizes and configurations, including leaded devices and surface mounted chips. Leaded styles include moulded and conformally coated parts with axial and radial leads. However, the basic capacitor element is similar for all styles.
Ceramic dielectric materials can be formulated with a wide range of characteristics. The EIA standard for ceramic dielectric capacitors (RS-198) divides ceramic dielectrics into the following classes:
Class I: C0G with a temperature coefficient of 0 ± 30 ppm per °C over an operating temperature range of - 55°C → + 125°C (Also known as NP0).
Class II: X7R with a maximum capacitance change of ± 15% over an operating temperature range of - 55°C → + 125°C.
Class III: Z5U with a maximum capacitance change of + 22% - 56% over an operating temperature range of + 10°C → + 85°C
Typical applications include use in extreme environments such as down-hole oil exploration, automotive, aerospace and defence.
C0G (NP0) Dielectric
Capacitors with stable and predictable characteristics over temperature and time, suitable for filtering, sample and hold and timing circuits where high Q and good stability are required.
